Comments Off

The South Broadway Cultural Center hosts a free film series of Spanish language films, with English subtitles. Next one: April 30, 2012.

These South Broadway Cultural Center movies are free to turn up and watch – and they’re throwing in free popcorn too!  The El Santo Film Series shows movies from the 1960s and 1970s, in the lucha libre/Mexican wrestling genre. I have to confess this is a whole new genre to me, so if you know anything about it to enlighten the rest of us, tell us in the comment box below! Meanwhile, I’m just passing on the free movie info, although I do think the masked wrestlers look rather fab.

The movies are in Spanish language, with English subtitles, and they all start at 8 pm. 

So we’ve got she-wolves, anonymous death threats, monsters, and a battle against a master race. What’s not to keep us on the edge of our seats, nibbling that free popcorn?

South Broadway Cultural Center is located at 1025 Broadway SE.

The KiMo Theatre’s new monthly film series puts the spotlight on movies featuring New Mexico, as is only fitting in the New Mexico centennial year. We are such a star-struck, star-spangled state, in every sense of the words.

The Texas Rangers is the free movie at the KiMo on Wednesday March 21 at 7 pm.  King Vidor directed the 1936 feature about a couple of former outlaws who start working for the Texas Rangers and have the job of hauling in an old buddy.

I’ll shoot straight and tell you that I’ve never seen this film and don’t know the first thing about it, except for what I just read at IMDb or the Internet Movie Database, which is the go-to source for things you always wanted to know about movies but didn’t.

Here’s the IMDb info about The Texas Rangers, and the only person I’ve heard of in the cast  is lovely Fred MacMurray, who also appeared in Double Indemnity.  The movie was filmed on locations in New Mexico near Diablo Canyon.

The KiMo Theatre is located at 423 Central Avenue NW.

Free Film Screening at The KiMo: March 8

See a movie for free – it’s made in Albuquerque!

Indie Q at the KiMo takes place on Thursday March 8, 2012, starting at 7 pm. The movie this time is: Missing You. It’s set in Albuquerque and was made right here, and you don’t have to miss any money to see it as admission is totally free!

It sounds like it might be a good movie if you want to grab a last-minute date to take…  But maybe not literally grabbing, if its a first date. They don’t always like that.  Missing You is described as comical, and it’s about a woman on the verge of her 30th birthday (I remember that terror). She’s looking for love, there’s a guy doing the same, and it sounds less like a boy-meets-girl scenario than a question of will the boy meet the girl? Will they? The romantic in me hopes so…

Due to some adult themes and language, the movie isn’t recommended for viewers aged under 13.

Doors open at 6:30 pm for the show to start at 7 pm. Take cash to purchase drinks and popcorn – they are real-money-only concessions.

Indie Q at the KiMo is a collaboration between the wonderful Albuquerque Film Office, the City of Albuquerque, and The KiMo Theatre, to show locally-made independent films. 

I’ve only just spotted that the free screening is upon us, so I hope some of you can get out to see it!

Free Movie Billy The Kid: Feb 15

Comments Off

Billy the Kid is the next in a series of free movies at the KiMo Theatre, as part of the New Mexico Centennial Film Series.

If you missed our previous post on this, Billy the Kid is showing free at the KiMo tonight, Wednesday February 15 at 7 pm.  You’ll need cash (real money) for the concessions though.

This is the first film adaptation of the legend of Billy the Kid, a 1930 black and white feature by director King Vidor, exploring the relationship between the young outlaw and lawman Pat Garrett who’s on his tail.

Apparently, the pistols you’ll see in this movie carried by Johnny Mack Brown (playing Billy the Kid) were the genuine pistols owned by the real-life Billy the Kid.  The pistols were loaned to the film studio from a private collection, according to an interesting piece of trivia I found on IMDb or the Internet Movie Database, which is the go-to source for things you always wanted to know about movies but didn’t.  

It’s part of the KiMo Theatre’s new monthly free film series, with the spotlight on movies featuring New Mexico, in honor of our New Mexico centennial year. Billy the Kid was filmed in New Mexico locations including around Las Vegas NM, and landscapes near Gallup.

The KiMo Theatre is located at 423 Central Avenue NW.
